Introduction to the methods and tools of microstructural analysis

Sunday, 03 September 2023

Time: 13:00 - 15:00 
Place: Seminargebäude
Moderators: Martin Müller, Saarland University and Dr.-Ing. Dominik Britz, Material Engineering Center Saarland (MECS)

It is well known that the microstructure, i.e., the micro- and nanoscale structures and the defects that occur, determine the properties of a material. Therefore, the main focus for all manufacturers and processors is on the control and quality control of the microstructure formation of a material within ever tighter tolerance limits. Quantitative microstructural analysis is indispensable as a control tool for this.

The tutorial begins with an introduction to the fundamentals of digital image analysis and microstructure quantification and new developments in metallographic microstructure contrasting for optical microscopy applications. This is followed by a general overview of different imaging techniques from light microscopy to electron microscopy and atom probes. Another focus is on tomographic techniques for complete microstructure description. All topics are illustrated with application examples.
